Our Source....

 I heard today, September 13th, is Positive Thinking Day! The power of positive thinking is absolutely astounding. Medical research confirms that a positive attitude works wonders at fighting disease. People with an "I think I can" attitude, are far more likely to succeed at work, and in accomplishing every goal they set in life.



As Christians,  we recognize that the key to positive thinking is not based on self (as the world promotes) but rather in Christ. Scriptures are rich in confirmation of what Christ has done for us and that living for Him is what abundant life is all about. As we turn on the news these days, it's difficult to not let negativity take over our thinking. However, we know who wrote the BOOK, we know how the story ends, and we Have Faith in God!!

Have Faith in God

Have faith in God when your pathway is lonely.
He sees and knows all the way you have trod;
Never alone are the least of His children;
Have faith in God, have faith in God.

Have faith in God when your prayers are unanswered,
Your earnest plea He will never forget;
Wait on the lord, trust His word and be patient,
Have faith in God. He'll answer yet.

Have faith in God in your pain and your sorrow,
His heart is touched with your grief and despair;
Cast all your cares and your burdens upon Him,
And leave them there, oh, leave them there.

Have faith in God though all else fall about you;
Have faith in God, He provides for His own:
He cannot fail though all kingdoms shall perish.
He rules. He reigns upon His throne.

  1. Oh yes! I vote we make every day Positive Thinking Day.

    As the song rightly reminds us: He'll answer yet. That just gives me goosebumps because there are a number of things I've waited upon for many, many years. The answer is coming.

    Be blessed,
